Wow. I’m speechless. Comes rushing out of the gates and doesn't let up. Melange of tropical fruit as well as cool climate fruit on the nose, exotic yet essential. Palate is so poised, beautifully balanced, with an amazing line of acid. Oak is elegantly woven through.

Precise sweetness and tartness drill into your palate. Remarkable juice!

Shimmering straw-yellow. Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas of white peach, pear, honeydew melon and Meyer lemon, along with a bright floral overtone. Juicy and densely packed, conveying a suave blend of richness and vivacity to the mineral-drenched citrus and orchard fruit and floral flavors. Takes on smoky lees, sweet butter and iodine notes with air and shows superb clarity on the strikingly long finish, which echoes the mineral and floral notes. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, July 2021)

Fine and pure expression of Margaret River Chardonnay. Arguably one of Australia’s best known Chardonnays

Wonderfully complex, showing new aromas every time you put your nose in it. Unripe banana, Asian pear, peaches, grapefruit, Meyer lemon, fresh-cut pineapple, cream, vanilla, caramel, sea spray, cardamom, and cinnamon. Lovely finish. Less funky than the Suckfizzle.

Starts off with sweet-ish lime and fresh, crisp acidity. Give it some tima and a remtalising buttery reward begins adding deptg and conplexity to your glass. Stone fruits a standout. One of the best new world charddy...

Outstanding Chardonnay. Big intense fruit, lightly oaked, sharp acidity, incredible long finish.

I opened the bottle and had a taste right away and it tasted weird. But after letting it breath for a while it was great.
